"The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Has a Crude Focus Mechanism"
Interested how you are going to debunk this, I could get mine to focus properly in less than 50% of shots. Some people might start explaining about shallow DoF at 1.8 but after switching to the 50 1.4 I got more keepers at 1.4 than at 1.8 with the 50 1.8.
Granted, I know nothing about the mechanism itself other than that it breaks easily (talk to someone who repairs lenses, they'll confirm this) but the results were definitely "crude".
"Major layoffs" <---> 5 people
Though I agree the limitation and the reason behind it is somewhat silly, I was wondering if there are actually people who run into this as a practical limitation?
I prefer stills but whenever I do shoot video I get nowhere near 30 mins a shot. I can't remember any feature films that have 30 min scenes in them either. Anybody out there want more than 30 mins?
